It is with great sadness that I announce that Vinny (FlyingVFreak) has passed away at the age of 53. Some of you may remember some of the great Polka Dot and Aztec Nightswans he painted on the the old forum.

I had the pleasure of sitting down and having a beer with Vinny, while in Santa Clara on business. He was a great family man, martial artist and Kramer Enthusiast.

He will be missed. RIP Vinny

Sad to hear of his passing.
He was talented painter.
RIP.

Very sad news. I spoke with Vinny quite a few times about doing some paint jobs. He was a very nice man. Cool cat all the way. In retrospect, I may have sent the aztec body to the wrong coast. God speed. He is/was a great person. Just sad. Rest in peace, big fella.

Jeff (Tourpix) spoke to Vinny’s daughter. We don’t know what happened. We just have the obituary. It’s weird that we’re all trained to expect to lose family, someday, but losing a peer can really hurt hard.

I keep thinking about sitting at a little Taco shop, next to the eBay building and listening him talk about how he was taking care of one of his parents, his wife’ parents.

There are a lot of “stand up” people in the Kramer Orbit. I’m glad to have known all of you.

Tommy

I knew him over at Shredguitars, great guy. Really sad to hear that he's passed, but thanks for letting us all know.
